German media giant Bertelsmann is launching a new Internet platform that uses a file sharing model for downloading and sharing movies or games.

The company said it would sell the service – GNAB – to mobile phone operators, Internet providers or TV stations, suggesting that they could then offer their clients legal downloads of large files under their own brand.

It could also allow them to share the files they have received over the network, effectively outsourcing the storage of the files and their download to the users of the network, writes Reuters.
